    Everything is coming together! Thanks TFP!

    Finally got everything in check, and added Borates. It took 3 weeks to finally get my TA to 70. At the end of the TA process it was taking 5 days to get the pH to rise.

    So final and goal(almost) readings....

    FC 3.5
    TC 3.5
    pH 7.4
    TA 70
    CH 350 - this jumped 100 since fill testing...... ??????
    Salt 2800
    Borates 50

    Whats with the CH? I am not going to replace water after this long journey!

    Wow, the pool looks great!

    About the CH. Now, it is a time consuming test (as you know) and very easy to get sidetracked with the count.

    First step I suggest is to retest.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Keep your pH down into the low 7's and the your TA around where it is now and you will never have to be concerned about that CH.

    However, what is the CYA in that sparkling, beautiful pool?

    I knew I forgot something. CYA is just below the 40 mark, my guess would be 42ish. Although I trick myself into thinking I can still see the dot half the time.

    I will retest the CH today, good to know it shouldn't be that big a problem.
